Tsuchimikado then stays behind to stop the suits while Tōma and Itsuwa chase after Terra at the Palais des Papes.

During their fight, Terra realizes that Tōma still has not attained the full power of Imagine Breaker because he lost his memory, but nevertheless, Tōma takes advantage of a weakness in Terra’s abilities to defeat him and destroy the C Document. Just as Tōma is about to inquire Terra about what he knows about Imagine Breaker, a squad of stealth bombers led by Accelerator attack the palace, allowing Terra to escape. However, at St. Peter’s Basilica, Terra is killed for involving civilians in the conflict by Acqua of the Back who decides to take the war against Academy City personally after Terra and Vento’s failures.
